Very Easy


Number of serving: 2
5 ounces sushi-fresh salmon

2 tablespoons wasabi

2 cups sushi rice

2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 bunch of chives


  • Lay a large square of plastic wrap on a clean dry work surface. Place a slice of salmon in the middle of the square. Put a tiny dot of wasabi in the middle of the salmon.
  • With slightly damp hands, shape approximately 2 teaspoons of sushi rice into a ball and place the ball on top of the salmon.
  • Gather the plastic wrap up around the rice ball, then twist the plastic wrap, sealing the rice inside, and firmly press the rice into a ball shape.
  • While holding the plastic wrapped ball in one hand, use your forefinger of your free hand to gently press into the center of the salmon to make a small depression, flattening the rice ball slightly in the process.
  • Unwrap the ball and set it on a plate. Place a small dollop of mayonnaise in the depression and garnish with several chive pieces.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the ingredients.
